Tourism is a Human Rights ISSUE

Finally I found this article in the Guardian: tourism is a human right issue.

Someone ready to create a Norwegian version of the Guardian? Also, Id love to get instant messages of all these high quality articles. Such an option does not exist.

The topic I’m so passionate about, “sustainable”, or “ethical tourism” in its sense “tourism for development” and “tourism to benefit local people”, would not be anything without the human rights aspect to it. Tourism Concern (tourismconcern.org.uk) is as far as I know the only organisation REALLY embracing that approach. I discovered them while writing an essay about tourism as a development tool a year ago and have tried to update myself on their campaigns since. Must say I look a lot forward to read more about this topic in the nearest future!
